OK, it’s only one urologist, but he did publish an article in a newspaper directed at urologists where he advocated bone pressed flaccid stretched length as a valid way to perform repeat measurements of penis length. His method does not include the glans (head) of the penis, but that sort of makes sense since it’s where one has to hold the penis during measurement and could be distorted with different amounts of pressure.
“Prior to beginning any reconstruction, penile stretched length should be measured. This is performed by measuring the dorsal shaft length from the pubis (by pushing down the pubic fat pad) to the corona. This length uses two fixed points during repeated measurements preformed pre-, intra-, and postoperatively.”
The article is about corrective surgery for extreme penile curves, especially those due to Peyronie’s disease, using tunica albuginea plication. It was published earlier this year, but I found it today while looking for something else.
WARNING: surgical photos accompany the article.
